that from congressional and law enforcement sources, myself and mike brooks, who actually got the first tip on this story. now, we don't know which senate office this was original hi sent to. but we do understand that this envelope was tested positive. and a first routine test, it was retested two more times, so it was tested three times all together. each time it came up positive. and that's according to a law enforcement source who said that afterward, it was sent to maryland on an offsite facility to do further testing. we should remind our viewers, after the anthrax scare back in 2001, in the fall of 2001, when a couple of senate offices received envelopes with anthrax in it, they changed the way that the mail is distributed on capitol hill, so they now begin for the most part in an offsite. so this was intercepted at an offsite mail facility, was not done -- did not make its way to the capitol. so this is the information that we have so far. i can also tell you that ted barrett, cnn's congressional producer, asked senate majority leader harry reid about this, what we were learning, and
from a boston law enforcement source who says in addition to the pressure cooker, they say it's undeniable, they have a twisted top of a pressure cooker, about 6 liter capacity. they believe it's two identical devices or two similar devices, but i'm also told a partial circuit board recovered in the same area that also has been sent to quantico. and now this all goes off, we go through this after airplane crashes, they try to take every piece they can get, assemble it back together, try to recreate the bomb. they're hoping to find fingerprints, any kind of dna, something from the backpack. and if you can't get personal identification items like that, look for serial numbers, brand names, at least try to figure out where was the pressure cooker, where might the bag have been bought. >> are you getting a sense from your sources about where this investigation? they are still appealing for help in terms of getting more pictures out there. giving out a fair amount of information which is sometimes kind of rare. >> you can tell from the special agent in charge at the news conference
analyzed by authorities. it was sent out to law enforcement agency so this everyone can compare notes. there's this picture showing a bag next to the mailbox right where the first bomb went offer. question tonight, was it one of the bombs? the fbi is analyzing it along with fragments of the pressure cooker. there is that and this, breaking news out of washington wac letter to a u.s. senator testing positive both in the field and now in the lab for the deadly poison ricin. dana bash is working her source on that and will join us. we have learned more about those who lost their lives and the wounded, and the loers who rose up to help others. we don't know about the third fatality, she was a chinese national, a graduate student at boston university not for farr from here, her name is being witt held at the request of her family and krisle camp eltame yesterday to watch her friend cross the finish line. she worked 16 hour days but was never too tired to share her love and a smile. she was just 29 years old. martin richard was 8 years old. his mother and sister -- the sign says no more hur
is in custody the last thing we should want for him is to remain silent. under the law of war we can hold this suspect as a potential enemy combatant not entitled to miranda warnings or the appointment of counsel." with us now from new york is paul callan, former new york prosecutor. what are police trying to find out from him at this point? >> i think we're trying to find out what things, first, are there other unexploded bombs out there that have to be recovered to protect the public and secondly they're going to want to know how did you get all of this explosive material? who sold it to you? where is the chain? are there others who may be involved in some kind of a broader conspiracy? those are the two areas that i think federal authorities would be exploring. >> obviously there are a lot of legal implications about this and a great deal of discussion about this. i want to you listen to what alan dershowitz said. >> the government made a mistake claiming the exception to miranda when the police said there's no public safety, it's solved, it's over, there are no further threats but the
will release that videotape in a court of law. they've described it in extensive detail. that's going to be powerful, powerful evidence in a potential trial. tom, thanks very much. let's recap quickly the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now facing federal charges, among them use gd and conspiring to 0 use a weapon of mass destruction rulgting in death. let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, what happens next? >> what happens next is that the case will be presented to a grand jury. prosecutors will begin presenting evidence, leading to an indictment. i think the process is going to slow down a great deal. remember, this crime was only a week ago. the government is going to have to assemble a lot of scientific evidence trying to tie material that could be connected to the defendant, to the bomb itself. this is complicated stuff. i think it's going to be months in the grand jury until a final indictment is ready to be presented probably. and then at that point the case will be presented to a trial judge, and there will be motions and then a trial. >> he no
of the things we have been talking about in the last day and a half in this investigation is how law enfo e enforcement officials will be looking for a bomb-making signature. some sign that shows where the bomb was put together and where they received their instructions. as you're looking at these pictures, are these the types of things that give you a sense of these signatures? >> quite reminiscent of some major cases i worked on while with ncis. using a device like this, almost always there are components left behind. the crime scene processing and technicians making the initial assessment and even chemical tests are being matched up at the national center, tdac at quantico, virginia. it will be confirmed whether the device flagrated or detonated which would indicate a higher explosive. all of these things produce leads for investigators to run down. >> john and i were talking during the commercial break going back to the olympic park bombings in 1996, the process investigators went through finding the nails that shot out of the bomb, tracing the nails back to the manufacturer and finding
that it was from law enforcement officials that it may have been from a failed suicide attempt. have we learned anything new specifically on that? >> reporter: we have spoken to the hospital about that, they will not give us any information. i spoke with a boston police chief yesterday, ed davis, and asked him specifically about that. he said he couldn't comment on it. but it is in his neck. it is keeping him from speaking. we know there was gunfire exchange and flash grenades that went off, which has caused dzhokhar tsarnaev to not be able to hear. he's lost part of his hearing. but he fell six to seven feet from the boat and there was lots of blood. with all the questioning and everything you're talking about going on in the hospital and that he's -- he has this wound, and he is under medication, i asked a former fbi agent who worked with group, i said, what kinds of questions are they asking him right now? he says, i would imagine they're asking him about his brother's trips, about the rhetoric, about the associates, about plans, other devices, ultimate plan, others involved, about his dad,
